Pasteurize & Freeze
Heat, Melt & Mix
When it comes time to make the initial batch of soap, the goat milk and lye are mixed in the sink while the oils are heated on the stove. When both mixtures meet specific temperatures they are combined and blended. If the milk is not frozen, it will burn when mixed with the lye.
"French Milled" (melted twice) to last longer and hold it's scent longer
Handcrafted Goat Milk Soaps
Molds & Freezer
During the second melt, scents are added and the hot soap is poured into special molds. Those molds go in the freezer for a few hours to set up.
Pour and set
Once mixed to perfection, the soap is poured into tubs to set up for at least 24 hours.
Once cured, the bars are sliced into long strips, put through the food processor to shred and melted a second time. This is the "milling" process.
Once set, the soaps are removed from the molds and placed on racks to dry.
Milked by Hand
Each soap batch is numbered and dated then set on drying racks to cure for at least 4-6 weeks.
